The Only Kiss That I Still Feel

I got home and fed my goldfish, poured myself a Ginger Ale
Watched a dumb reality show, while I sorted through my mail
Opened up the weekly paper, that I get from my hometown
Though I ain’t been back since college, there are times I miss it now

Mostly it’s just local gossip, and the score of Friday’s game
City council votes in favor, of a traffic light on Main
Then I saw a young man’s picture, in the bottom of page nine
And that photo took me homeward, on the dusty wings of time

Strollin’ on the old fairgrounds, Crown Royal in our Royal Crown
And the full moon was a pale white pearl
Scent of caramel on the wind, with his fingers ‘neath my chin
We kissed slow behind the tilt-a-whirl
And my bratty sister was, laughin’ hard and watchin’ us
Makin’ faces on the Ferris wheel
Maybe that’s what true love is, though that wasn’t my first kiss
It’s the only kiss that I still feel


Left my house key with a neighbor, caught a cab and found a flight
Memories were roamin’ Main street, when I got in that night
And I laid awake till mornin’, in that noisy Super 8
Walked out past the city limits, through some lonesome gates

Then I stood beside a willow, and I watched from way in back
And I saw he left no widow, just his mama and a flag
Then I saw a lost tomorrow, through a looking glass of tears
And a love that might’ve happened, as I wiped away the years

Strollin’ on the old fairgrounds, Crown Royal in our Royal Crown
And the full moon was a pale white pearl
Scent of caramel on the wind, with his fingers ‘neath my chin
We kissed slow behind the tilt-a-whirl
And my bratty sister was, laughin’ hard and watchin’ us
Makin’ faces on the Ferris wheel
Maybe that’s what true love is, though that wasn’t my first kiss
It’s the only kiss that I still feel


We were young and made our choices, and then we went our own way
His path led him to forever, mine led back to yesterday


Strollin’ on the old fairgrounds, Crown Royal in our Royal Crown
And the full moon was a pale white pearl
Scent of caramel on the wind, with his fingers ‘neath my chin
We kissed slow behind the tilt-a-whirl
And my bratty sister was, laughin’ hard and watchin’ us
Makin’ faces on the Ferris wheel
Maybe that’s what true love is, though that wasn’t my first kiss
It’s the only kiss that I still feel

The only kiss that I still feel
The only kiss that I still feel…

Absolutely beautiful,Robert. I knew that you'd go somewhere special with this one, and I wasn't let down. This one gave me chills.

Do I wish I would have written that? Sure thing...but...I probably couldn't have, 'cause I'm not YOU.

Outstanding....my friend.

You too can write like this! All it takes is writing every single day for about 10 years! Everything about this lyric delivers, especially the hook. I think when you know you have a good hook, it inspires good writing. I hope the music get into the right hands. if it does, I will be hearing this on the radio.

Robert...

It is mostly hard for me to make a useable comment on writing that hits home on so many lyrical fronts...mine will not be an exception but I would simply say this...your work is very inspiring to me....
